“Great meal and Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

This is our "go-to" local restaurant. Whenever we want to have a reasonably priced meal we can depend on, whether with family, friends or just our twosome we go here. We've gone for lunch and dinner. Our apps are always excellent. We love the hummus, tzatziki and beets to start. I also order the calamari which is tender and crispy...always uber fresh. For entrees, some are meat eaters and they order either beef or lamb gyros or platters. They report them to be delicious. Those of us who are vegetarians who will try fish/seafood occasionally, have had the scallops and shrimp with platters, as gyros/wraps or in salads. The grilled veggies are scrumptious! We have never been disappointed. You must try their Greek Fries. It's hard to stop eating them. The servings for everything are way ample and we generally take home leftovers for the next days lunch. Desserts are "to die for."

Only downside if any, is the noise level. It can get a bit loud sometimes. We have a favorite corner table though that puts us out of the fray :). You can't go wrong, if you want no-nonsense "good eats."

“A great find for great value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

We visited Thavma in February with friends. I've always loved the hummus. It was my first time going here for dinner. I loved the food! I enjoyed delicious fish with fresh steamed vegetables. The meal was healthy, delicious and reasonably priced. The staff was friendly and professional. They let us sit and relaxed. We enjoyed a leisurely time together without any interruptions or being rushed along.

“consistently good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Food is well prepared and a good value. Staff is attentive but not overbearing. The Thavma chips are very good. In good weather, there is a nice pation for outdoor dining.

“Great local restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

This is one of my favorite byob's in Livingston. The waitress/waiters are friendly, the food is excellent, and it has outside eating in the summer. It's on the 2nd floor overlooking the town center. Parking usually is available close by. The appetizers are generous along with the pita. The menu has something for everyone. Always have a great meal.
